Orthopedic Injuries

As people age, their bones tend to lose density. As a result, the risk of sustaining orthopedic injuries becomes heightened. Even commonplace accidents can cause substantial damage to an elderly person’s musculoskeletal system, resulting in substantial pain and discomfort. 

However, regardless of age, depending on the circumstances, anyone can sustain orthopedic injuries. While certain orthopedic injuries (like tennis elbow) can be sustained by the overuse of certain muscles, these disruptive and painful forms of musculoskeletal damage can be acute, as well. Orthopedic injuries are especially common for people who have been involved in car accidents, slips and falls, and other traumatic events caused by someone else’s negligence.

Fractures, breaks, dislocations, sprains, and hernias can make it impossible to carry out routine, everyday tasks. Depending on the nature of your job, sustaining an orthopedic injury may make it impossible to carry out the tasks required of you. This can lead to financial and emotional stress, especially if you do not have access to paid time-off or an insurance plan covering short-term disabilities. 

If you sustained orthopedic injuries in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence and have incurred financial losses as a result of being injured, our Ontario personal injury lawyers may be able to help you recover compensation. To learn more, take advantage of a free initial consultation by calling 1-800-JUSTICE.

Common Types of Orthopedic Injuries 

When negligent drivers collide with other road-users, when a property owner’s failure to maintain their premises leads to slip and fall accidents, or when other parties fail to uphold the duty of care they owe to fellow community members, accidents can occur. Depending on a number of factors, including the physical circumstances of the accident and the age/medical condition of the people involved, the negligence of others can have painful consequences.

Some orthopedic injuries that are commonly sustained in traumatic accidents include:

  • Sprained ankles
  • ACL tears
  • Meniscus tears
  • Shoulder dislocation
  • Torn rotator cuffs
  • Wrist fractures
  • Hip fractures
  • And more

Recovering from orthopedic injuries can be a lengthy, complicated, and frustrating process. While certain mindfulness practices could help injured accident victims throughout their recovery, depending on the severity of their injuries, usually physiotherapy and rehabilitative exercises are necessary. Without sufficient insurance coverage, these necessary costs can be prohibitively expensive, especially for those who cannot return to work because of the injuries they have sustained.
